  • Turkey Shoot Benefit for Wayne Hurst December 12th

    Posted on November 28th, 2009 Ocoee Lions Club 2 comments

    On December 12, 2009, next to the West Orange Girls Club, the Ocoee Lions Club and the Rotary Club of Ocoee will be having a turkey shoot fundraiser for Wayne Hurst.

    Why are we having a turkey shoot fundraiser for Wayne Hurst?

    In 2001 Ocoee native Wayne Hurst decided to donate one of his kidneys to a complete stranger. He did this in honor of his father who passed away of kidney failure when Wayne was 8 years old. He thought he could make a difference in one person’s life… and that he did. The recipient of Wayne’s kidney is a happily married man now with a beautiful baby. Unfortunately, after Wayne’s yearly check-up he discovered that he is now in kidney failure and is in need of a kidney transplant. Wayne will be out of work for some time and although he has medical insurance, it will not cover all of the costs. Please join us to help raise money to cover some of his costs.

    There will be…

      Turkey Shoot–8:30 am to 5:00 pm

      Food

      Bounce Houses

      Face Painting

      Car Smashing

      50/50 Drawings

      Raffles for Many Great Prizes

    100% of profits from this event will go to benefit Wayne Hurst.

    UPDATE: We need donations for items to raffle off and to use in door prize drawings. Suggested ideas are gift cards and baskets or certificates for services to be performed.

    We are also in need of food donations such as chips, sodas, hot dogs and buns, condiments, and paper products.

    And of course, if you prefer to help with cash, please make your check payable to Wayne Hurst Kidney Transplant Fund. These donations will go directly to the Hurst family.
